GRASS for Cray

GRASS has been compiled on a cray. The speed isn't "Craylike"  at
all  due  to the reasons Duane Marble points out. The only tricky
part of the compilation was that the cray  doesn't  recognize  .a
files as libraries unless they are preceded by the -l flag:

      cc -lgislib.a

instead of

      cc gislib.a

This means writing a "fake" CC command  that  changes  all  xxx.a
files to -lxxx.a and then runs cc.
